Farm to School: Our Children's Health, Our Community's Future
Video furnished by Media Productions, New Mexico State University. Noncommercial use only. Farm to School programs are popping up all over the country – there are now over 1,000 programs in 35 states. Perhaps there is one in your community. In this DVD we explore how school districts, parents, communities, and non-profit organizations are working for change in the health of our children by connecting them with the sources of their food. It is easy to feel alarmed by the increased incidence of overweight and nutrition-related diseases such as diabetes in children at younger and younger ages. As we follow the journey that an apple takes from a Northern New Mexico orchard into the mouth of a child in a city school, we can see that there is hope for a better diet, healthier food choices, and longer lives for children all around our country.
